Good processor, very efficient. Best value on the market at the moment.
3 May 2014
Summary: Good processor, not really an upgrade from a 2500k, but slightly more efficient per clock and per watt. Haven't overclocked yet, so I can't comment on that. If you're using an older chipset that only supports the Ivy Bridge processors with a BIOS upgrade, make sure you do the upgrade before you...
Summary: Lightning fast Processor. Still holds up quite well, despite Haswell being out. Overclocked to 4.8ghz without much hassle, and is kept relatively cool by a h100. 4 stars because Haswell is out, and you should probably get that instead of this :P
Summary: This product lived up to the unanimously positive review scores it receives. I've had it for almost a year, so maybe it has been dethrone by another product, but all PC games I play still run buttery.
Pros: -Great performance for the price
Cons: -I bought a heat sink with this product that I've had installed from day one, so I can't speak to the product's noise or heat levels.
Summary: difficult to say anything bad about this chip. Is fast, is cool, in other words is almost perfect, no drawbacks at all, no hang ups. What else can be said, everyone knows why is one of intel's biggest succes, for me much better choice between i7 3770k, specially for the price on a very close...
